Region Overview

The Wami-Ruvu Basin is comprised of the Wami and Ruvu Rivers. The Wami flows from its source in the Eastern Arc Mountain ranges of Tanzania in a south-eastwardly direction from dense forests, across fertile agricultural plains and through grassland savannahs along its course to the Indian Ocean. The Wami River Sub-Basin extends from the semi-arid Dodoma region to the humid inland swamps in the Morogoro region to Saadani Village in the coastal Bagamoyo district.The Ruvu sub-basin extends from Morogoro to the west of Dar es Salaam through the Coast and Dar es Salaam regions. The Ruvu sub-basin is in mostly low lying areas, except for the Uluguru Mountains in the extreme West.   The population of both the Wami and Ruvu basins combined is approximately 5.4 million.
